. the house or senate members. it's because they have constituents that support and control, like harry reid's district, so it's a major issue. i believe the background checks at the gun shows, i believe that could pass congress without using executive action. but the fear is there for the people. george bush did it as well, but we have to relinquish the fear. i think, by going through congress and getting it passed by congress, it will be less drama and try to strip funding from the atf through congress, through the continuing resolution. host: do you think if president obama does executive orders, the that poisoned the well for even the background checks, let alone the assault weapons ban? caller: the background checks, there are federal background checks already, so he may expand that law. host: take a look at what the washington post says president obama is expected to say later this morning. background checks for all firearms buyers, as did the assault weapons and high capacity ammunition clips. some of those or most of those would have to be done through congress. but perhaps he does s

. harry reid, john boehner, all of the leaders. take a look at the flags being waved on the national mall in front of the u.s. capitol. i'm looking out at this picture. it is a huge, huge crowd. anderson cooper on is on the other side. not far away from the washington monument. from your vantage point what does it look like? >> it is an amaze sight here, wolf. you can see flags as far as the eye can see. former president clinton. hillary clinton. haven't seen much of her since she got out of the hospital. nice to see that she's here today with the former president. they make their way towards the podium where they will sit behind president obama and vice president biden as they are sworn in. we are going hear them announce when they walk in. >> like a school teacher. ♪ ♪ >> ladies and gentlemen, the 39th president of the united states, jimmy carter and mrs. rosalynn carter. >> president carter and rosalynn carter stepping down. taking their seats. followed by all the former presidents who will be here. >> john king, something special about this. just the tradition of it all. it is all
to harry reid and the president. we should do what we believe in, what we were elected to do and pass it over to the united states senate. the senate needs to do its job and they haven't. >> greta: it's interesting, secretary geithner sent a letter to speaker boehner about the debt and it's interesting, it says congress should act as early as possible to extend the following authority. the reason i thought it was interesting, no place in the letter does he say the president has the authority to raise it unilaterally. there's no sort of-- maybe there was no reason to include it in, but i thought that it was interesting it was silent. >> and the democrats have this crazy idea we print this multi-trillion dollar coin and that would supposedly make everything go away. the reality is, we have to stop spending money we don't have and you've got to attack entitlement reform and attack discretionary spending. >> greta: clock is ticking down. congressman always nice to see you. >> thanks. >> greta: and good news about former president george h.w. bush, tonight he's back home. this afternoon pr
support tougher existence. few in favor of new laws. senate majority leader harry reid says he won't ask democrats to make politically difficult votes on issues that can't get the republican led house. republican -- examined very closely. >> this is a very important constitutional right, we are dedicated to protecting the second amendment from that standpoint. so, what we want to focus on are ways to make sure that people with serious mental difficulties are kept away from firearms. >> any legislative proposals would begin in the senate and then go to goodlatte's committee in the house. shepard? >> shepard: here in new york senator signed toughest legislation in the nation. law expands assault weapons ban already in place in new york state. it makes it illegal to buy those firearms on the internet seven bullets down from the national stashed of 10. if somebody steals your gun, you will have 24 hours to report it. otherwise, you, the owner, could face a penalty. and the law ups the sentences for certain weapons crimes including taking a gun on to school property. keep in mind this is the

: that's not the harry reid i know. >> alisyn: let's get to other stories in the headlines, late last noos night, two drones strikes, at least three of the bodies were burned beyond recognition. the death toll could rise in the hostage crisis at a gas plant in algeria. many were killed including one american. two americans are still missing and the crisis ended yesterday when the algerian army attacked the plant killing two militants. president obama said this is attack is another reminder of the threat posed by al-qaeda and other violent extremist groups in north africa. and the president says he'll work closely with algeria to make sure this does not happen again. brand new details in the prostitution scandal at the zumba dance studio. a 57-year-old married man accused of bank rolling the oranges a organization and speaks out denies knowing about the so-called brothel run by alexis wright, but admits to co-signing a loan. >> never became romantic. we did have intimate moments, but it's not what i would consider romantic. >> and i'm confused about the difference. >> want to explain.
here. first of all, there was a lot of talk about harry reid, a senate majority leader, who's a gun owner. he's from the gun rights state of nevada. he has been very cautious saying that the senate should be cautious, but my understanding from talking to a number of sources is that he's speaking for himself but he's also speaking from the perspective of political reality, that there are a number of people in his caucus who would potentially really get slammed for supporting anything. so that's why he wants to take it slow. he doesn't want his people to walk the plank and suddenly not be the senate majority, lose the majority. but the other thing i think is really important to keep in mind is just how different this is. kind of taking it up to 5,000 or 10,000 feet. i cannot tell you how many times after so many of these tragedies, after one of their own gabby giffords was shot, calling up senate democratic sources saying, are you going to do anything? nope. nothing's changed. after aurora, nope, nothing's changed. n newtown changed the dialogue, the decision at the white house and he
to be the breakthrough that allowed an agreement, after consulting with the president, harry reid apparently made clear he didn't want a deal. no deal. so there was no deal. and now the sequestrations are about to take place. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman has 22 minutes remaining. mr. gohmert: so we had a debt ceiling bill that was undermined from the beginning, no deal was reached, sequestration, massive cuts to our national security, our national defense. would be inflicted. and massive cuts to medicare. our leaders responded to me that , gee, the democrats will never allow the cuts to medicare, the sequestration to medicare, $300 billion or so, they'll never allow that. that's why we know the supercommittee will reach an agreement. i advised them that that would not happen. there would be no agreement. of course they're willing to have $300 billion or so cut to medicare because obamacare cut $00 billion from medicare, from our seniors' care, without a single republican vote. so the only way the democrats could run a commercial last year, 2012 with any sincerity at all saying, gee, republica
